The 1840s home continued its journey from Winooski to Burlington (Saturday morning, Aug 6)
Police stopped traffic in two Vermont cities Saturday morning to accommodate
the moving of a historic house.
The 1840s home had to leave its address in Winooski because developers are putting
in a new apartment and office building called City Lights.
The builders offered the structure free to whomever would pay for its removal.
That cost has been estimated at around $100,000.
Early Saturday morning, a team from New England Building Movers carefully guided
the house through the Winooski rotary and over the bridge to neighboring Burlington.
Eventually, the house will sit on Manhattan Drive, in Burlington’s Old North End.
